91-year-old Rachel Rabin Yaakov commented today (Sunday) for the first time on the controversial remark made by coalition chair David Bitan regarding her brother’s murder. Yesterday, Bitan claimed that former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin’s murder was not a political act.

“One said it and the person who needed to comment on it didn’t,” said Rabin Yaakov during a conversation with Channel 2 News. “The one who said this strange statement, I don’t have any other way to describe it, was the coalition chair and his superior, the prime minister, is keeping quiet like always,” she said. “I expect that as the prime minister and head of the Likud, he will respond to this and tell the coalition chair that this was a political murder. It is nonsense what he [Bitan] is saying.”

Yesterday, JOL News reported that Bitan said that Rabin’s murder was not political because it was not carried out by a politician.
